YouTube Tuesday #18: Kakum National Park Canopy Walk

If you are scared of heights this could be very difficult for you.  Kakum National Park near Cape Coast, Ghana has a very unique jungle experience.  About a 15 minute hike from the parks main gate tourist center is the start of the canopy walk.  It starts on top of a hill on a platform and you walk on level suspended bridges between tree top platforms, as the forest floor drops away from you below you will get to about a 130 feet into the tree tops.  The whole experience is 7 bridges with platforms between them that stretches about 1000 feet.

In another area of Kakum it is possible to sleep in the rain forest in a tree house platform.  This is a great way to hear the sounds of the forest.  You can experience Kakum in our Beach and Sun Adventure, and our Day in the Life of  Ghanaian tour.
